Candace Cameron Bure is very steadfast in her Christian beliefs, but she says that keeping the spark alive in her marriage depends on staying sexually in tune with her husband.

Cameron Bure, who has three children with former NHL player Valeri Bure, told Dr. Rachael Ross this week on daytime show The Doctors that she has certain things in her life that she makes a priority to keep her union healthy.

"We have to schedule time together. But the other part is making sure that we stay connected sexually," she told Ross, according to Us Weekly. "That's a very fulfilling part of a marriage. When you're happy sexually, it kinda just balances the rest of the stuff out. You're not so mad at each other, you're not nitpicking at the little things."

Cameron Bure also noted that keeping herself physically fit is a key point in maintaining a fulfilling life, which actually might go hand-in-hand with her marriage philosophy. "I have found that I'm a much happier person, I'm awake longer, I have more energy when I'm being physical, I'm exercising," she said. "My clothes feel better, I feel prettier, my skin radiates."

The Full House actress' candidness about her body and sex life while conversing with Dr. Ross came as a bit of a surprise, considering how bashful and adamant she was about remaining somewhat covered up while competing on season 18 of Dancing with the Stars. Cameron Bure has also said in the past that a major part of keeping her marriage together is taking a submissive role as a wife. "I am not a passive person, but I chose to fall into a more submissive role in our relationship because I want to do everything in my power to make my marriage and family work," she wrote in her book Balancing It All: My Story of Juggling Priorities and Purpose.
